Tuesday night's episode (May 27) saw David (Michael French) suffer a heart attack on the day of his wedding to Carol Jackson.

Carol's daughters, Sonia and Bianca, believe that David (Michael French) has done a runner on the day of the wedding - but, when Liam arrives with terrible news, David's family realise with a shock that their father's life is hanging in the balance.

Now new images released by the BBC have shown David gripping his chest in pain as eldest daughter Bianca desperately tries to get the car started in order to drive him to the hospital.

But, in true Bianca style, the journey doesn't go as smoothly as she hoped.


The redhead can be seen panicking as she attempts to drive off, the Queen Vic in the background, while her younger sister, Sonia, comforts David in the backseat.

David first started having a heart attack in last night's episode on the day of his wedding to Carol Jackson, and it was Bianca and Sonia who found him, but did they find him in time?


Earlier this month, EastEnders bosses confirmed that Michael French would be leaving the BBC One soap - so perhaps this health scare will see David take a very final (and one way) trip out of Albert Square.

We hope not though; we really wanted to see him and childhood sweetheart Carol get the happy ever after they've always wanted.


EastEnders will air tonight on Thursday May 29 at 7.30pm on BBC One.
